Runoff Autocross Recap - June 29, 2019


By Rob Walker

On June 29, our chapter hosted the 12th Annual Rug Cunningham Memorial Autocross in the west lot of SDCCU Stadium. Our runoff format features early timed runs, from which we gather class winners to go head to head in a Mystery Car. The Mystery Car provides a level playing field to see who's fastest of the fast.

The weather was perfect, with a little bit of spitting rain in the early afternoon. The course was a reprise of a very fast and flowing one previously used for the 2015 runoff.  Satakal Khalsa has been hitting the ball out of the park for the Club's recent courses— this year’s runoff being no exception.

Independent Motorcars provided the Mystery Car, a 1993 318is. More than one runoff competitor remarked that the car had great balance and handling, but could be challenging to drive fast if you're not careful to maintain your momentum.

Runoff competitor results:

  • Grayson Marble         88.878

  • Clint Boyd                 89.671

  • Daniel Ralston             90.516

  • Mikey Ross              90.665

  • Tyler Johnson                90.746

  • Kurt Mlillson 90.827

  • Paul Hualde                92.130

  • Peter Minero            94.560

  • Ryan Moore               94.613

  • Rishi Patel               97.316

  • Charlie Engen          97.650

Congratulations to Grayson M. for winning this year's showdown and for showing us all what it means to “mind your momentum.”
